In Reply Drs Mychaskiw and Drolet present contrasting points of view on for-profit medical schools. Time will tell whether for-profit medical schools will, as we suggested in our Viewpoint, distinguish themselves by committing to educational innovation in the best tradition of the private sector and in the spirit of a market economy. It is our sincere hope that the new for-profit schools will be in a position to promote quality health care in underserved areas and for underserved populations, as exemplified by the circumstances of the founding and early performance of the Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine.
